Limited Supply Challenge

Hello and welcome! So happy to have you join me on this very special day... for Papertrey Ink's very first Stamp-A-Faire event! I truly hope each of you have been enjoying the festivities. If you are new to this, be sure to check out Nichole's blog for all the details and happenings. You won't want to miss out! 

It's time for the Limited Supply Challenge...  Nichole has given us, the design team, a list of supplies that we are work with.  The challenge is to use only those supplies.  Each of us have created a card to share with you today.  Each featuring the gorgeous Natural Beauties stamp set, which is an exclusive Stamp-a-Faire set that you can get for FREE today with a $100 purchase at Papertrey Ink!...
Stamps: Natural Beauties

Ink: Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores & Smokey Shadow
Paper: Stamper's Select White & Aqua Mist
Ribbon: Hawaiian Shores Bitty Dot
Buttons: Simply Chartreuse

CUTTING LIST: (In case you're wondering)
Aqua Mist Card Base measures: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Stamper's Select White measures: 5 1/2" x 3 3/4"

To start... I cut a card base from Aqua Mist cardstock and rounded the bottom corner.  Then trimmed the white cardstock panel and rounded the same corner.  Using Aqua Mist ink, I stamped three large flowers in a triangle formation. Using Hawaiian Shores ink, I stamped three small flowers also in a triangle formation.
Stamped this gorgeous sentiment in Smokey Shadow Ink.  Then, to cover the cardstock seam, I wrapped the card base with ribbon and tied into a bow.  Finished the card off with a trio of Simply Chartreuse buttons.

Now, head over to Nichole Heady's blog for all the details about this challenge and all the other festivities for today. And don't forget to stop by the design team girls' blogs to see their takes on this challenge too!

Hope you have a fun filled Stamp-A-Faire day!
